A year-and-a-half after breaking ground at Temple Street and Beaudry Avenue, a multifamily residential complex from LaTerra Development is beginning to rise above street level.


The project, which will eventually consist of an eight-story structure, sits at the southwest corner of the intersection.  Plans call for a total of 53 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments - including four units of deed-restricted very low-income housing - atop a three-level, 64-car parking podium which would be accessed from Angelina Street to the south.

Designed by Urban Architecture Lab, the contemporary mid-rise structure will be largely clad in dark cement plaster.  Renderings show common amenities for residents, including a central courtyard and a rooftop deck.

At the time of the project's groundbreaking in April 2019, completion was expected in 18 months.

While taller than the school athletic fields and surface parking which surround the property, LaTerra's project will be dwarfed by the neighboring Ferrante development across Beaudry Avenue.  The massive apartment complex from developer Geoffrey Palmer will include more than 1,100 residential units and ground-floor commercial space.

LaTerra, which is headquartered in Century City, is also developing multifamily housing projects in Mar Vista, East Hollywood, and Santa Monica.
